North Whitehall Township

Lehigh County, Pennsylvania

SSM prepared construction drawings for the half mile rails to trails project along the former Ironton Railroad right-of-way.  The project connected the existing Ironton Rail-Trail already established in Coplay Borough and Whitehall Township.  SSM prepared construction drawings and submitted a Joint Permit application to the PADEP for the conversion of a railroad bridge into a mulit-use bridge across the Coplay Creek. 

The trail was improved with compacted gravel and was funded in part by a PADOT Alternative Transportation (TEA21) Grant. 

SSM also assisted the Township during the construction phase of the project.
